Blind to the Light

lyrics

Shackled and bound by shadows and flame
The mind starts to falter through physical strain
Delusions stretch high and cover the walls
Denial and panic they eat at your thoughts
Darkness and stone they seem to consume
All preconceptions of life that you knew
Echoes of whispers are cold to the touch
Pray the philosophers words are enough

Balance the darkness and light to behold
Remember the nightmares of what came before
Intrusion of senses that seem to betray
The gift of perception that you gave away
The image is burnt in the back of your mind
The fire is growing in front of your eyes
Part of life's greatest illusion is choice
Acceptance is found from the sound of your voice

I'm blind to the light
I cannot see the fragments falling
I'm blind to the light
I cannot recall this allegory
Into the realms of fabrication
And the doubt that follows
Look away to ease their pain
Screaming shadows against the walls


The mind and its workings are fragile indeed
Its intricate logic is easily swayed
No longer pretend, no longer deceive
Philosopher's words are defined by their means
Archaic recitals and tragedies played
Images woven from lives that weren't saved
Was it all real or shadows that laughed
As you struggle to find your way back


I'm blind to the light
I cannot see the fragments falling
I'm blind to the light
I cannot recall this allegory


The limits of acceptance are reputed with your name
If one must attain their freedom
Then men must venture through the cave
Venture through the cave!!!!
Through the cave!!!

Another failure of philosophers and fools
A weak and empty gesture to restore their faith in you
What answers did you think you’d find inside the cave
A wheel of fire nothing more except the life you gave

Pushed beyond limits you never thought real
The labours it took to survive this ordeal
Drop to your knees, embrace the light
These concepts shall follow you all of your life
Defining the process it too took to achieve
No words can describe what it means to be free
Your body and mind both exhausted and spent
You won't survive should it happen again



I'm blind to the light
I cannot see the fragments falling
I'm blind to the light
I cannot recall this allegory
Into the realms of fabrication
And the doubt that follows
Look away to ease their pain
Screaming shadows against the walls

about

Wargrave Cape Town, South Africa

While the roots of the band lie deep in 80's thrash metal, Wargrave draws inspiration from an extremely diverse spectrum, infusing the classic archetypal sound with undertones drawn from modern progressive and technical death metal. The result is a sonic apocalypse, a display of speed and technical proficiency whilst maintaining a strong sense of melody. ... more
